Just got my cookbook in the mail today. It has 75 total recipes with only 20% of them have meat in them, the rest are vegetarian (veg meals, salads and soups, desserts and jam). Here is the breakdown: 3 - Turkey dishes, 2 - beef dishes, 7 - chicken dishes, 2 - fish dishes, 2 - shrimp dishes. It would have been nice to have an optional "add meat" to the recipe but since I am new to this, I am not sure how to add meat to these dishes. There are many recipes that should have meat in them: Chili (no beef?), taco salad (no beef?), cheeseburger salad (no beef?), eggroll in a bowl (no pork?), Shepherds pie (no beef?) all of which are made with beans or other alternatives. I prefer to have meat with each meal and since this book also has desserts, soups and breakfasts, there are little ideas for actual standard dinner meals.
This is a must have for anyone with an instant pot

WOW, this is the best instant pot cookbook I have ever used. I took about 10 out of the library to test after I received my instant pot. This is the only one that I went out to purchase and I used it all the time. I have never been disappointed and have made nearly everything in the book. It is just fabulous.
I can’t say enough great things about this book!! Easy, fast, and delicious recipes. We have been blown away by each one we’ve tried. The author gives a lot of great tips and tricks on using the instant pot and when you can make substitutions for certain ingredients. I’ve been telling everyone about this and just picked up another for my mom. Highly recommend!!
I gave this as a gift and had a chance to look through it first. It is very nice in appearance and recipe layout. I decided to order one for my Instant Pot loving sister, and one for myself to adapt to my stove top pressure cooker. Little did I know that I would receive an Instant Pot a few days later! The recipes look great and there are several good vegetarian recipes, which is what I'm interested in. Target was spot on with it's claim of fast free delivery.
Oh. My. Word. This is the third cookbook by author, Megan Gilmore, The Detoxinista, and it is fabulous! Every recipe has a photo, and if needed, a vegan variation and a gluten-free variation. I have already made three recipes from the book that I received Tuesday and will be making a 4th... African Peanut Stew, today. (doesn't that sound amazing?) Y'all, if you have an Instant Pot or other similar pressure cooker, get this recipe book!
I'm super excited to try all the recipes in this book! I already made the "Cheeseburger" salad with special sauce for lunches this week - this special sauce is soooo yummy! I love that there is a picture for every recipe, plus most recipes are gluten free (perfect for me since I have celiac) and vegan (we're trying to eat more plant based). And the recipes that aren't GF or vegan, there are tested GF and vegan options/alternatives. So excited to use my instant pot for these creative and yummy-looking meals!
So Much Yum with Easy, Healthy Instant Pot Recipes!

The Detoxinista has been testing these recipes for months, and I'm so excited that the book is finally published. Megan has managed to create even more creative, varied and yummy meals, this time with the ease of cooking in an Instant Pot. I'm making Egg Roll in a Bowl tonight and will have no mess on my stove because all cooking will happen in my Instant Pot. This is the third of Megan's cookbooks I've purchased, and all of them are excellent. Each cookbook has health and diet tips, and the recipes enjoyed by my entire family. The photos are gorgeous and the instructions are easy to follow. I am going to do a week of meals from this cookbook. I'm looking forward to delicious, healthy recipes in my Instant Pot!
